Of all communichble di.seases reported 64 per cent were velnereal. A qtuestionnaire sent to the registered physicians of that State and answered by 50 per cent of those addressed, elicited the information that half of t the physcians there had under their care 114.532 cases of venereal diseases. Computing from these figures on a population basis and reasoning' 'from the draft record of the Surgeon General of the Army showing Louis- f isana's enlisted men with a higher percelntull of infection than those of t "rTexas. there are at least one hundred thousand cases ot venereal disease tinder the care of physicians in Louisiana. -a ('ertainly from a medical anti economic viewpoint each one of these cases costs thei State directly or indirectly one hundred dollars. Ten million dollars a year is a vast sum of money to spend on diseases I that are preventable. We can measure the dollars-hut the agony and tears, the want and desolation inflicted on innocent women and children no one can compute. The above information is sent to the press of Louisiana hby William Edler, scentific assistant of United States Public Health Service. Surely more authentic information is not required to bring these terrible facts to mothers and fathers, who may be of the greatest help in saving our v young men and women from intolerable afflictions that so often follow v in the path of this demon that saps the life blood from our youths. P Our Public Health Service is appealing to all, in its fight against a disease that is creating more human dereticts than all others combined. t The teacher, the preacher and priests, the lawyer, the doctor, the nurse, te man, te woman, all ar eappealed to, to help, through education, save i our cildren from the hellish pitfalls that are often responsible for these ( conditions. It is a father's duty to warn his son, it is a mother's duty to tell her daughter, it is our duty to disseminate these awful facts in our i effort to stamp out the oldest and worst diseases on earth. We should t remember that these diseases are preventable. ADMITTED GUILT Morris Hillquit, one of the suspended Socialists of the New York As sembly, has admitted that the Espionage law ended a mostrous plot of the radicals to cripple the United States during the war. It was the fear of this law that caused the Socialists to abandon their open opposiion to the policy of the country. Pursuant to the plan of crippling the United States in its war activi- I ties, they admit that the advocated the repudiation of the Liberty Bonds, and that the calling of a country-wide strike was a part of their traitorous policy as their country stood on the threshold of the World War. This was all admitted under pressure and most reluctantly by the witness HAllquit. But the salient outstanding point is that, forced to admit all this, the witness was pushed further, and agreed that his views and the views of the party were unchanged. In a word, they were unrepentent; they were still traitors to their country; they would do the same thing, pursue the same policy over again if circumstances permitted. They admitted their guilt and were unconverted. , What shall be done witn such men as these? It is all very well to chatter about the rights of free speech, but it is actions that count, and these actions count louder-much louder than any words. Is it fit and proper that men like Hillquit and his associates should be permitted a voice In the council of the state? The argument is that they were elect ed, and as elected representatives they should be permitted to take their seat and speak in the assembly. No. A thousand times, no. With things getting to this point we take our stand with the gallant Decatur, and cry: "My Country-right or wrong, my country!" and our country was right. In this controversy, we may strike off that last word, "wrong." and cry *iMy country-my country is right." YOUR BABY KEEP THE LITTLE TOT COMFORTABLE AND HAPPY.
